The County 4-H Fair showcases the continued achievements and skills that our 4-H and other youth have learned throughout the year. 4-H projects, but also projects from Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, school, and other youth organizations are welcome. The County 4-H Fair is open to any youth who meet the age eligibility listed in the general rules. Youth under 8 years old as of 1/1/17 should check specific department rules.
Participating in the County 4-H Fair is a highlight in the lives of our 4-H’ers. During the fair, they will create memories and make friendships that may last a lifetime.
Congratulations to all of our 4-H’ers whose work will be recognized during the fair. And many thanks to our youth and adult volunteers and staff who contribute “To Make the Best Better”!
This fair could not happen without the caring and talented 4-H adult volunteers who work directly with our youth. The experiences that result inspire creativity not only in our youth but also in our adults who give their time and talent to make this event a success.
Goals of the County 4-H Fair are to:
1) Showcase, evaluate and recognize the accomplishments of 4-H members
2) Encourage teens and adults to become 4-H volunteers
3) Highlight the county 4-H program
4) Familiarize the public with 4-H philosophy
5) Provide an opportunity for the public to participate in enjoyable and educational, family-oriented 4-H events
Hundreds of people will attend the fair and once again be impressed by the accomplishments of our 4-H’ers. Although certain activities are standard every year, there are new opportunities that arise in particular 4-H project areas.
4-H’ers, continue to take pride in sharing your expertise with the public. For many fairgoers, this is their first exposure to 4-H and the positive impressions they receive are lasting and strong. Thank you for connecting to the public by sharing your positive experiences and continuing to grow our County 4-H program!
